Where Do The Children Play?

    Well I think it’s fine building jumbo planes
    Or taking a ride on a cosmic train
    Switch on summer from a slot machine
    Get what you want to if you want,‘cause you can get anything
    I know we’ve come a long way
    We’re changing day to day
    But tell me, where do the children play?

    Well, you roll on roads over fresh green grass
    For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas
    And you make them long, and you make them tough
    But they just go on and on, and it seems that you can’t get off
    Oh, I know we’ve come a long way
    We’re changing day to day
    But tell me, where do the children play?

    Well you’ve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air
    Will you keep on building higher
    ‘Til there’s no more room up there?
    Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
    Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?
    I know we’ve come a long way
    We’re changing day to day
    But tell me, where do the children play?
